Synopsis: 
The star of the hit show Glee shares her experiences and insider tips on beauty, fashion, inner strength, and more in an illustrated book that’s part memoir, part how-to, and part style guide.

Lea Michele is one of the hardest working performers in show business. Whether she’s starring as Rachel Berry on Glee, rocking a glamorous look on the red carpet, recording her solo album, or acting as the spokesperson for L’Oreal, Lea is the ultimate multi-tasker. She knows better than anyone that it is difficult to be your best self and keep things in perspective when your to-do list is overflowing and you are faced with challenges, so she’s developed a foolproof system for remaining healthy and centered. In Brunette Ambition, she reveals the lessons and advice that have worked for her--from beauty and fashion secrets to fitness tips, and career insights. Supplemented with never-before-seen photos and revealing anecdotes, it’s the book Lea wishes she’d had in her teens and early twenties: A practical and inspirational guide to harnessing tenacity and passion and living the fullest life, no matter what obstacles life puts in your way.
Rating: 5/5

My thoughts: 

Okay so I actually started reading Lea's books months ago, back when I posted about it on here in, I'm going to guess, June. So admittedly I've already read the first three chapters, but I never finished it and I've really wanted to. 

I fell a little out of love with Glee the past two years, but fell back in love with it this year. But I never fell out of love with Lea. I've been a fan of hers from the moment I started watching Glee, back in 2009. She's so talented, beautiful, inspiring and I think I'll forever be a fan of hers. By far, one of my favourite singers and actresses. My love for her has only grown over the last 5 and a half years!

In this book, Lea talks about how she got started, her time on Broadway, her time on Glee. She also gives tips on make-up and hair, living a fit life, and skin care and self-care. There's a section where she talks fashion in her everyday life, an on the red carpet. There's also a section of recipes throughout the book, some I really want to try! 

One of my personal goals this year is to exercise more and have better eating patterns. I would say eat healthier, but that's a goal I know I'll just fail at right now. I live with my parents, and since I'm currently unemployed, I'm just relying on what they buy for food. I can't force them to eat healthier just because I want to. I think once I have my own income, I want to try and buy my own groceries and cook for myself. But that's going to take some time. Anyways, my point of sharing this is that reading Lea's book is a good motivator. Specifically her chapters about food, and living a fit life. 

Overall I really enjoyed reading this book and getting an insight into Lea's life. If you're a Lea Michele fan like me, go pick this book up!
